Warthog Piglets Debut at Zoo Atlanta

The warthog piglets born to Shirley on April 7, 2010, have made their official debut. The precocious new arrivals were recently reunited with their father, Vern, and are sure to delight Members and guests as they explore the Georgia Power sponsored warthog exhibit Kalahari Connections with their parents.

Warthog piglets are typically weaned by the time they are 6 months old, although older siblings may reside with their mother until her next litter is born. While wild warthog fathers tend to have little or no association with their young, Vern has proven himself a protective and interested parent.
